Hey evey body!!  I haven't posted in a coon's age but here goes nuthin:

I was randomly surfing the web one day and I decided to look up scale mail and I found the coolest thing ever!!  I had seen where people were making chainmail with these cool dragon scales, but then I found that someone was making knit gauntlets with the scales rather then using jump rings, which can be tedious and painful, .  The etsy shop for Crystalidyll (sponser) sells knit gantlets and bracers and dice bags etc... Although her stuff rocks!!! I am poor and I can't afford her prices, so I made one.  I crocheted mine because I cant knit in the round yet. The scales can be found on ebay or www.theringlord.com and they are pretty cheap.  Anywho here is my gauntlet, I hope you like.





Tell me what you think please! Grin

 These are officially one of the cooliest things I've ever seen!! I can't crochet to save myself, but I love doing chainmaille and think attaching them into yarn is amazing.

 Good Work!!

Love the idea, the scales are awesomely used. I would recommend using similar yarn to scale colors next time for a more seamless look.

I'm going to make a mermaid tail for my daughter and this would be the perfect technique to use.
